Chaff...Wheat Kings' F John Quenneville was pointless in Canada's 4-2 loss to the United States Saturday in their opening round-robin game at the 2016 World Junior Hockey Championship...Brandon D Ivan Provorov was pointless in Russia's 2-1 shootout win over the Czech Republic Saturday at the WJHC...F Tyler Coulter takes an eight-game point streak (4 G, 5 A) into Sunday's contest...F Ty Lewis is on a five-game point streak (2 G, 4 A).
